• If I were to bring you shame
    By doing something wrong
    Would you forgive me and keep me close
    And forget before long

    If I were to lose myself
    And not act quite right
    Would you still care and never leave
    And hug me especially tight

    If I were to run away
    Would you miss me so
    Would you search for me and never sleep
    Until I came home

    If I were to break your heart
    By forgetting your song
    Would you remember and tell me once more
    Would you still love me, Mom?
